An Evening with Jelani Cobb & Nikole Hannah-Jones


On November 18 at 7 p.m., The New Jersey Institute for Social Justice and The Newark Public Library, Prudential and NJPAC, will host a conversation with two of the leading intellects of our times – Jelani Cobb and Nikole Hannah-Jones.

Jelani Cobb is an award-winning writer for The New Yorker and a PBS Frontline correspondent for two critically acclaimed documentaries – "Policing the Police" and "Whose Vote Counts." He is Dean of the Columbia Journalism School.

Nikole Hannah-Jones is the Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of the iconic 1619 Project at The New York Times Magazine. She has spent her career investigating racial inequality and injustice. Her reporting has earned her the MacArthur Fellowship, a Peabody Award, two George Polk Awards and the National Magazine Award three times.

Both help us put into perspective the trends of our time through a look at the racial forces at play in our history and in our present.
